As with Gladness Men of Old

Author: William C. Dix Meter: 7.7.7.7.7.7 Appears in 610 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 2:1-12 Lyrics: 1 As with gladness men of old did the guiding star behold, as with joy they hailed its light, leading onward, beaming bright; so, most gracious Lord, may we evermore your splendor see. 2 As with joyful steps they sped to that lowly infant bed, there to bend the knee before Christ, whom heaven and earth adore; so may we with willing feet ever seek your mercy seat. 3 As they offered gifts most rare at that cradle plain and bare, so may we with holy joy, pure and free from sin's alloy, all our costliest treasures bring, Christ, to you, our heavenly King. 4 Holy Jesus, every day keep us in the narrow way, and when mortal things are past, bring our ransomed lives at last where they need no star to guide, where no clouds your glory hide. 5 In that glorious city bright none shall need created light; you its light, its joy, its crown, you its sun which goes not down; there forever may we sing alleluias to our King!

Brightest and Best of the Stars of the Morning

Author: Reginald Heber Meter: 11.10.11.10 Appears in 884 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 2:1-11 Lyrics: 1 Brightest and best of the stars of the morning, Dawn on our darkness and lend us thine aid; Star of the east, the horizon adorning, Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid. 2 Cold on His cradle the dewdrops are shining, Low lies His head with the beasts of the stall; Angels adore Him in slumber reclining, Maker and Monarch and Savior of all! 3 Shall we then yield Him, in costly devotion, Odors of Edom and offerings divine. Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean, Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine? 4 Vainly we offer each ample oblation, Vainly with gifts would His favor secure; Richer by far is the heart’s adoration, Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

[Refrain] 3 And by the light of that same star, Three wise men came from country far; To seek for a King was their intent, And to follow the star wherever it went. [Refrain] 4 This star drew nigh to the northwest; O'er Bethlehem it took its rest; And there it did both stop and stay, Right over the place where Jesus lay. [Refrain] 5 Then entered in those wise men three, Full reverently upon the knee, And offered there, in His presence, Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense. [Refrain] 6 Then let us all with one accord Sing praises to our heavenly Lord; That hath made Heaven and earth of naught, And with His blood our life hath bought.

O Little Town of Bethlehem

Author: Phillips Brooks Meter: 8.6.8.6.7.6.8.6 Appears in 810 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 2:5 Lyrics: 1 O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by. Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light; the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight. 2 For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above, while mortals sleep, the angels keep their watch of wondering love. O morning stars, together proclaim the holy birth, and praises sing to God the King, and peace to men on earth. 3 How silently, how silently the wondrous Gift is given; so God imparts to human hearts the blessings of his heaven! No ear may hear his coming, but in this world of sin, where meek souls will receive him still the dear Christ enters in. 4 O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray; cast out our sin, and enter in; be born in us today. We hear the Christmas angels the great glad tidings tell; O come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel. Topics: Biblical Persons Used With Tune: FOREST GREEN
